Being the wonderful person that I am, I have decided to sacrifice my intelligence (if there was any), my time and even my sanity (hey I was sane once upon a time) to help all of you steer clear of Bollywood crap.


Dhund - The Fog

This movie was made specifically to serve as a launchpad for the new comers. It did launch them... but out of space, into the fifth dimension of no-return. Here's how...

The Cast

Amir Upadhyaya of Kyuni... fame

Aditi Govitrikar of Mrs World fame

Apoorva Agnihotri of Pardes

Another actress whoz name I don't know and didn't bother to find out (lets call her lady #2, shall we)

The Story??

It's all about murder and suspense. A true thriller. Here's how...

  • A dead guy walking around terrorizing the lead pair

  • A murder at the start of the movie

  • A police officer who is very suspecting, played by Gulshan Grover.

  • The female lead, that terrorizes the audience with her expressions and pathetic attempts at 'acting'(?)

Simran (Aditi) is a model who takes part in a beauty contest which the sister of a baddy also wishes to win. The baddy decides to ‘warn’ Simran about entering the pageant. Now the thing is, this baddy is dead and the four lead actors (?) hide his dead body in the swimming pool for fear of being caught. How they get the body is too painful to explain and doesn’t matter. The body is found missing from the pool and the man they thought was dead is actually alive. He is terrorizing them. Amar Upadhyaya talks like a detective and that is supposed to make this one a thriller. He says... Jise humne pool mein fenka woh zinda nahin tha. Ab woh zinda kaise ho sakta hai?' on reply to which both the actresses shudder. And thus the saga continues...

The Music

Don't bother. That's all I have to say.

The Acting

Amar Upadhyaya does know how to act. He can act. He lacks screen presence.

Aditi Govitrikar should stick to photo shoots where no dialogue is necessary. She does scream a lot... but fails to register a good performance.

Apoorva Agnihotri is quite ok. One can't criticise him for he has very little to do in the acting department anyway.

Lady #2 was better than Aditi, but let that not be a credit to her. It was just that Aditi was worse.

The Reasons to watch it

  • Interest in B grade thrillers

  • Fan of Mihir aka Amar aka Kyunki saas...

  • Can't get enough of Aditi (go watch '502 pataka chai' ka advertisement instead)

The Reasons to skip

  • Coz I'm telling you to

  • Poor plot, could have been much better

  • Really really bad acting

  • Stupid name 'Dhund - the Fog' (eeeks)

Why The Fog in the title?

Take your pick...

  • 'The Fog' in this movie symbolises the secret that the actors carry about the dead body

  • Coz ' Dhund - The Dog' would just have sounded silly

  • To aid non-hindi speaking viewers

  • 'Dhund' was just too short a title, afterall it's fashionable to have a title like AKAMARJ...

  • FOG stands for Failure Of Grey cells

  • To give the title a sophisticated English touch (so much for 'Indian is better')

How they used the title to full effect...

There was fog in all the night scenes, perhaps to cover up for the shortcomings in location selection (?)


Do Not watch if answer to any of the following is yes

  • Do you have a brain that functions in a more or less satisfactory manner?

  • Do you have family and friends who care for your mental health?

  • Do you believe in my judgement? (Ok ok, don't answer that one. I said don't answer it. It's not funny. Stop laughing!!)
